Excited for the future!


I'm sure you did a good job with your talk mom :) I'm happy you felt the Spirit confirming and sharing your message, that's always a good feeling. I have more chances to have this happen as I give weekly trainings to my district and I'm even talking in church this Sunday for 15 minutes

I think that's funny that J-Dawgs is now a tradition for Gma and Gpa taking missionaries to the MTC haha I think they liked those hot dogs.

Tell me some more about your companion.  Do his responsibilities change the way you do things?  
Some of his responsibilities change some of our daily stuffs but not a lot. It stays about the same. The only difference are at night when we're following up or random meetings that we have to attend.

How many districts are in your zone? 
I think.. 4

Have you had any more days when you have had to stay in because of the protests?  

How are the temperatures? 
They're pleasant in the morning and nights and a bit warm during the day but in the shade if you're not doing anything it's also pleasant

Is it getting cold enough to need a coat?
Some days 2 weeks ago, we used the coat a bit but only at night, but this week it's been a bit warmer. Plus we walk a lot which keeps us warmer.

The president has had to think hard about these weeks to come because of the world cup and what would happen with us. Looks like one zone might get closed because of the proximity to one of the stadiums but the others will continue to work like normal except on the days where Brasil plays. When Brasil plays, he wants us to watch the game in a members house for 2 reasons, to keep us off the streets before and after the game because of safety and secondly because he wants us to take advantage of this opportunity and make friends with friends and relatives of the members where we watch the game so that's what we'll be doing! It'll be pretty fun :) unfortunately I won't be able to be decked out in my Brasil gear which I've been buying. I bought 3 more shirts and I plan on buying more stuff :) It's pretty awesome here, everyone's selling everything about the cup. The prices aren't bad too!

This week was okay for us, we got interrupted by a couple things that messed with us so we didn't have a Lot of success but we're excited for the future! In our stake conference, we heard the words of Richard G Scott and M Russell Ballard. Elder Scott spoke straight Portuguese....almost, he said some words in Spanish sometimes which I thought was funny but it was understandable. It was very cool, very good counsel that they gave us and the other stakes here in this area.

I continue to like my area and my district and my companion. There’s not anything here that I Don't like yet.

Random fact, the president is letting us watch Disney movies on p-day now! I think I'm gonna watch Frozen :D We already watched today, Shrek: Forever :D haha

Well that's about it. Thank you guys for your love and support and letters! I love you all!

Elder Horton
